Zacks Investment Research downgraded shares of BOK Financial Corporation (NASDAQ:BOKF) from a buy rating to a hold rating in a report published on Tuesday.

According to Zacks, “Shares of BOK Financial have outperformed the industry in the past one year. This price performance is backed by impressive earnings surprise history. The company has surpassed the Zacks Consensus Estimate for earnings in three of the trailing four quarters. We believe the diverse revenue mix and favorable geographic footprint will likely support growth in the upcoming quarters. The company's continuous expansion via acquisitions is also expected to aid top-line growth. However, consistently mounting costs remain near-term headwind. Also, significant exposure towards brokerage and trading revenues remain a major concern.”
